Wusik has finally released Wusik Station 8, which they say is actually a new product, rather than just an upgrade.
Why is this a new product?
Wusik Station 8 was re-coded from the ground-up, using code from Wusik 4000 & 8000, resulting in modern cross-platform native code.
Wusik Station is now Windows and Mac OS X compatible; VST/AU 32- and 64-bit versions are supplied.
What has changed on V8?:
- Cross platform: Windows and Mac OS X (possibly Linux too, later this year): This alone may not seem much, but it is, most of the work will be recoding the project so it can use modern cross-platform code instead of the current code.
- Multi Line Graphical Envelopes (*).
- New Filter Types, including a custom user filter script type (*).
- "Unlimited" number of parallel filters per layer.
- "Unlimited" number of chained effects per layer insert and per master sends (2 in total).
- "Unlimited" number of Mod Envelopes and LFOs.
- Better Wavesequencing style (*).
- Audio Looper layer, which samples any incoming audio signal and let you play like an instrument (*).
- Multi Layer with the option to select the type of layer:
- Sample Player.
- Wave Sequencer.
- Drawable OSC.
- Super OSC.
- 3 OSC (with Noise generator).
- Audio Looper.
- Groove Sequencer (not included yet).
- Per Layer ARP and also a Master ARP.
- 16 Steps Polyphonic Sequencer per layer, to be used as a Modulation Source on the Mod Matrix.
- Per Layer Key Switching and Sticky Keys options.
- Per Layer Modulation Matrix.
- New Interface and Skin.
(*) borrowed from Wusik 4000 & 8000 code.
